A Little Help With Focus

We live in a time and place where we can watch whatever we want, wherever we want, whenever we want, and do it in complete privacy from our computer, TV, or smartphone. Let me call this out, it's too easy to get our minds and eyes on pornography. This last Sunday I shared how important it is for us to stay focused and guard our thoughts. Guarding our thoughts starts with guarding our eyes and what we allow into our minds as fodder for free time thinking.

If you struggle with pornography you need to get some digital accountability. If you're a parent, you need to know that your kids should not be allowed to have free access to the internet, they need some digital accountability. In my house we use a program called Qustodio. This program allows me to set filters on my children's internet use, set alerts for certain types of behaviors (i.e. accessing a search engine), to set time limits on their internet use, and to see all of their internet activity. I can install this on their profile on the computer and on their handheld digital devices (i.e. iPod, tablets).

A basic version of this is free, but you'll probably need to pay for one to cover all your families' devices. I'm not a paid endorser just a dad that knows he needs to protect his kids and that you need to protect yours. You can view, preview, and subscribe to Qustodio at www.qustodio.com. There are other great programs out there, simply search for "internet filter" and you'll find a host of great programs like NetNanny, CovenantEyes, and a host of others. It took some time for me to find what would work for us, but it was time well spent. Do the research and find a program you can use then start using it! It's too important to guard our hearts and minds and the hearts and minds of our kids. If you need help with focus then get it.
